A man that cared about our land and waters. Clear Water Revival events to save the Hudson River. Saw Pete there many times. RIP Pete. His music will live on.

R.I.P. Pete Seeger - He was among my first music experiences, at the age of three; my parents listened to him. He defied the House Un-American Activities Committee – he was a uniquely American hero.

Sad to see .... He was a primer in my more radical teen years

Obviously not perfect (no such thing!), but a righteous, and courageous man.

Long life well lived, may you shine somewhere else.

Think I'll honor him by getting his book and learning banjo.

My parents brought all of us kids when I was about 9 years old to a concert he gave during his blacklisted years, which left a lasting impression. I saw the Weavers years later at the Clearwater Festival. He's an American hero.

Despite his renown, I always felt he was somewhat overlooked and underrated as a musician. RIP
